If your child swallows dish soap?

I was watching Little Rascals and wondering about the part where Alfalfa swallows the dish soap and sings. What would happen if a child ate dish soap? Would he burp bubbles? Haha! Or would it cause serious damage? Or would it just make you vomit? Would you vomit bubbles or just normal vomit? Haha!

  • I would call poison control. The colorings, scents, and other ingredients could make the child sick.

  • a kid i went to school with used to have dawn squirted in his mouth for punishment if he lied. Not much, but just a squirt. He said it gave him diahrea, but that is all.

  • I would assume it would be like many other soaps, they would just get an upset stomach, maybe vomit and have diarrhea. It sure wouldn't be fun!
